five points down. energy and enthusiasm is on our side. our folks are work harder than ever. grass-roots movement is harder than ever and momentum in is our direction which you always like. bill: in 2004 president bush beat senator kerry by 118,000 votes? is that the model for the state? do you have to the match the bush numbers to win? >> it will be a little dynamic i think. i hope it is not that close. i think it will be a narrow victory. i think time around governor romney has the opportunity to get a lot of support from folks who supported barack obama last time who live near some of the big cities like cincinnati, cleveland, columbus who thought i would want to give this guy a chance. they have given him a chance and it hasn't worked. they have seen the results. we've seen unemployment go up. here in ohio poverty rates go up. food stamps go up. the kinds of things that indicate we're not heading in the right direction. what they're seeing is governor romney has a plan to change things, turn things around. big changes needed right now in washington that people think is broken.
